Xian and Muslim Sex Discrimination Confronted
I Corinthians 7.1 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
2 Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.
4 The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.
6 But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.
7 For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.
8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I.
9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.
10 And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:
11 But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.
12 But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.
13 And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
14 For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.
15 But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.
16 For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?
17 But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.
18 Is any man called being circumcised? let him not become uncircumcised. Is any called in uncircumcision? let him not be circumcised.
19 Circumcision is nothing, and uncircumcision is nothing, but the keeping of the commandments of God.
20 Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.
21 Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather.
22 For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord's freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ's servant.
23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men.
24 Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God.
Broken down, Babble-on is saying:
I Corinthians 7.1 Now concerning the things whereof you wrote to me asking me what is good or bad, right or wrong regarding intimate relationships. Well, it is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2Nevertheless, in order to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
Here we go again with Paul's sneaky use of the word let. This is not a situation wherein a person stands back and lets / allows other people to do as they will. Instead, Paul is sneakily issuing commandments. Thus, in I Corinthians 7.1-2 Paul is really saying:
I Corinthians 7.1 Now concerning the things whereof you wrote to me asking me what is good or bad, right or wrong regarding intimate human relationships. Well, for a man to touch a woman is BAD, BAD, BAD. 2Nevertheless, in order to avoid fornication, I command every man and woman, "Thou shalt marry and touch one another so you men can be BAD, BAD, BAD! Heh-heh."
3 Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence. Likewise, let the wife also render due benevolence unto her husband.
In other words,
3 Married people, thou shalt render due benevolence to one another! Since touching a woman is so BAD, BAD, BAD that all women ought to be among the Hindu untouchables, less benevolence is due to the woman, however. Heh-heh.
4 Wife, thou shalt pretend like you have no power over the functions of your body. Husband, thou shalt take over all power over the functions of your wife's body. Go ahead a rape your wife any time you feel like it! Heh-heh.
Likewise also, husband, thou shalt have no power over your own body. Instead, wife, thou shalt take over all power to manipulate and control the functions of your husband's body.
Go ahead! Boss one another around! Keep trying to manipulate and control one another! Nag one another to death! Demand sex from your spouse whenever you feel like it regardless of how your spouse feels. Keep trying to make your spouse mind you, you suckers! [And even,] Get out the whip, chains and leather, and get into playing those male/female domination roles while having sado-masochistic sex, you suckers! Heh-heh.
Islam's males obey Paul by taking over control of females' bodies even further than most Christians do.
Today the only legal evidence of a Saudi woman's existence is the appearance of her name on her husband's card. If she gets divorced, her name goes on her father's card; if he's dead, her brother's; and if she has no brother, the card of her closest male relative, even if she scarcely knows him. Manar, 35, a Riyadh translator, thinks ID cards for women will make a real difference. "As long as you are a follower, you cannot have a separate opinion, you cannot be outspoken," she says. "Once you have a separate identity, then other things will come." For most Muslim women, there are many things left to come." The Women of Islam, p. 59.
Christianity's failure to see that I Corinthians 7.4 is of ultimate evil is very self-indicting, because giving up controlling behaviors is among the first orders of business when we enter the process of gaining redemption. I don't know that I have heard anybody explain the necessity of giving up controlling behaviors better than does a dentist friend of Bill W's. The essence of what the man says is as follows.
"I have an asset. I like to be punctual. My family does not care about being on time for meetings and social gatherings, however. When I was trying to force my desire to be on time on my family, my asset turned into a defect, because I was trying to force my will on them, and it made me mean, agitated, bossy, and crazy when they were late. I had to learn to let go and keep the focus on myself. Therefore, today we take two cars to social functions. I drive myself and arrive on time. The rest of my family goes in another car and arrive when they feel like it, and their tardiness does not make me mean and crazy any more."
Spousal abuse, child abuse, road rage, etc. are exceedingly evil behaviors centered in control issues; i.e., the control freak is attempting to make his victim/s mind him. Rape is also centered in controlling behaviors; i.e., the rapist gets off on a power high from dominating his innocent victim/s. If you have not:
been taught to pay attention to the poisonous intoxication inside yourself that is ignited when practicing manipulative, controlling behaviors, and
begun the process of trying to give up manipulative, controlling behaviors,
you cannot know just how SEVERELY demonic I Corinthians 7.4 is. The bottom line to giving up controlling behaviors is God's following commandment:
"All things whatsoever you would that men should do to you, do you even so to them, for this is the Law and the prophets." Matthew 7.12.
Thus, the Lord is the same as telling us,
"If you do not like having other people attempt to control you, then stop trying to control other people."
In addition, He is also informing us that the commandments and writings of the prophets given in the Bible that are directly inspired by God are those that are centered in, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
That Paul succeeded in seducing Christians into complying with Paul's demandments is blatantly obvious, which is why they think they are so holier-than-Thou when they protest against homosexuals, abortion, pornography, etc. attempting to FORCE other people to mind them. In other words, Paul taught Christians to control other people, and in complying with and repeating Paul's crap, they not only practice acts of terrorism, they attempt to seduce others into practicing exceedingly wicked manipulate, controlling behaviors, too.
5 Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.
To defraud is to:
cheat, trick, deceive, misrepresent;
pretend to be somebody or something that you are not;
deprive somebody of something by deception; and
intentionally pervert the truth in order to induce another person into parting with something of value or to surrender a legal right.
Thus, spouses defrauding one another by permission is impossible, and the mere suggestion that it is okay for spouses to defraud one another is an obscenely despicable attempt by Satan to infect the Christian mind with the suggestive belief that adultery is okay.
the failure to restrain sexual appetite;
the inability to control evacuative functions;
the state of lacking self-restraint and being out of control.
So what is Paul saying on the surface?
5 Husbands and wives, thou shalt not deny your spouse the right to have sex with you at any time unless both of you agree to abstain from it so that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer. Then it's okay for you to defraud one another. Afterwards, thou shalt come back together again to have sex just so Satan will not tempt you to cheat on your spouse or masturbate due to your inability to control your sex drive.
What makes Paul's demandments all the more bizarre is that:
To fast is to refrain from eating so that we can learn and work faster. Fasting is hooked primarily to the grief process of repentance, and to learning and working faster than we can do on a full stomach. I cannot make myself fast. I either have to be in a grief process, or God has to take control of my appetite in order for me to fast -- the point being that a person can fast for Spiritual reasons while continuing to have sex with his/her spouse.
These "when and why to have sex" instructions are hooked to Paul's repetitious commandment ordering his Christyins to "Pray without ceasing!" in direct opposition to the Lord's prayer instructions, and as if God were too deaf to hear our prayers the first time. Therein do those Christians who comply with Paul's lunacy (and the Muslims who have been deceived by Muhammad) fulfill the warnings regarding those heathens who "think that they shall be heard for their much speaking," Matthew 6.7, and the hypocrites who "for a pretence make long prayer." Matthew 23.14; Mark 12.40.
6 I speak about husbands and wives defrauding one another and the inability of their bodies to control their sex drive by means of having been granted permission by God to speak about this. This is not one of His commandments, however.
7 My will is that all men be like I am, a homosexual, heh-heh. Ah, but every man has his proper gift of God. One man is gifted in this manner, while another man is gifted in that manner.
8 Therefore, I say to the unmarried people and widows that it is good for them if they abide even as I do. 9However, if they cannot contain their heterosexual appetites, let them marry, for it is better for them to marry than it is for them to burn in Hell.
10 Unto the married people I command, yet not I, but the Lord, "Thou shalt not let the wife depart from her husband! 11But and if she departs, she shall either remain divorced, or be reconciled to her husband!" And "Thou shalt not let the husband put away his wife! Therefore, if a man divorces his wife, excommunicate him, shun him, beat him up, or murder him!" Heh-heh.
And that sounds like the Lord issuing commandments to you, does it, Christian? Actually, the Master tells us that fornication / adultery is just cause for divorce. Watch how Islam handles divorce, however.
Wives in Islamic societies face great difficulty in suing for divorce, but husbands can be released from their vows virtually on demand, in some places merely by saying "I divorce you" three times. Though in most Muslim states, divorces' are entitled to alimony, in Pakistan it lasts only three months, long enough to ensure the woman isn't pregnant. The same three-month rule applies even to the Muslim minority in India. There, a national law provides for long-term alimony, but to appease Islamic conservatives, authorities exempted Muslims. Fear of poverty keeps many Muslim women locked in bad marriages, as does the prospect of losing their children. Typically, fathers win custody of boys over the age of six and girls after the onset of puberty. The Women of Islam, p. 52.
I cannot help but gag when Muslims claim Islam grants superior human rights to females.
12 But to the rest of you people, I, not the Lord, am the speaker who commands: "If any brother has a wife who does not believe my teachings, and it pleases her to dwell with him, let him not divorce her. 13And the Christian woman who has a husband who does not believe in me, if he is pleased to dwell with her, thou shalt not let her not leave him!" 14Thou shalt force her to remain married to him because the unbelieving husband is sanctified by his Christian wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by her Christian husband. Now you know that I am telling you the truth because if husbands and wives were not sanctified by one another, your children would be filthy dirty. Because husbands and wives sanctify one another, however, your children are holy.
What an asp!
Paul was merely suckering his Christians into believing that if their spouses did not believe Paul, the Christian spouse should attempt to cram Paul's dogmanure down his/her spouse's throat, because otherwise, their children would be spiritually dirty. Therein was he suckering Christian spouses into practicing even more obnoxious controlling behaviors.
Each of us is responsible for our own behavior. Thus, children can be sparkling clean Spiritually even if their parents are filthy dirty from wallowing in sin.
Further, to sanctify is:
to set something or someone apart to a sacred purpose; consecrate;
to free from sin; purify;
to give moral or social sanction to;
to make productive of holiness or piety.
Now hear what the Master says regarding sanctification:
John 10.34 Jesus answered them (the religious Jews who were accusing Him of blaspheming), "Is it not written in your law, 'I said, "You are gods"'? 35If he called them gods unto whom the Word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken, 36say you of Him whom the Father has sanctified and sent into the world, 'You blaspheme!' because I said, 'I am the Son of God'?
37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. 38But if I do, though you believe not me, believe the works that you may know and believe that the Father is in me, and I in Him."
And just prior to the Master's being arrested to be crucified, He spoke the following in His prayer to God.
John 17.14 I have given them your Word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world even as I am not of the world. 15I pray not that you should take them out of the world, but that you should keep them from the evil. 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17 Sanctify them through your Truth. Your Word is Truth. 18As you have sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself that they also might be sanctified through the Truth.
20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word 21that they all may be one. As you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be one in us -- that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22And the glory which you gave me, I have given them that they may be one even as we are one. 23I in them, and you in me, that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that you have sent me, and have loved them as you have loved me."
To be sanctified is to have reached a higher level of Spirituality due to our having been given the ability to perceive the mysteries of the Bible / God's Word. The spouses of Christians are not going to be sanctified by the speech and actions of a Christian spouse because no Christian has perceived the Word of God in the first place. And the primary reason why they do not perceive the Word of God is because PAUL talked them out of obeying those portions of God's Doctrine that people can easily understand.
If you don't understand how people who are sanctified are not of this world, the answer is in the focus of our thoughts and lives. Thinking about God, His Doctrine, and wanting to do good works to please Him is almost always on our mind and in our efforts. By contrast, the people who are of this world are they who rarely think about God, and/or are focused on self-promotion, on making money, people-pleasing, looking good to their fellow man, etc. And suffice it to say that NOBODY has done more to lock humans into the cares of this world than has Paul, the anti-Christ.
Paul's lunacy in I Corinthians 7 continues:
15 Nevertheless, if the unbelieving spouse departs from the marriage, thou shalt let him depart! A brother or a sister is not under the bondage of marriage in such cases. Instead, when an unbelieving spouse departs from a marriage, God has called the Christian spouse into the experience of peace.
Nope. Paul is sending the message that spouses divorcing due to one of the two not believing in God is okay. Not so. The Lord tells us that divorce is only sanctioned by God when fornication / adultery is the issue.
That would be one of Satan's scraptures used by the Cataholic church to grant anullments to a married person if the wedding ceremony was not performed by a Cataholic priest in a Cataholic cathouse / church -- even when the marriage union produced children. And in so doing, the Catholic church is attempting to make bastards out of the children. What a whore!
16 After all, how do you know, O wife, whether you shall save your husband? Or how do you know, O man, whether you shall save your wife?
Oh, how cute. First, in I Corinthians 7.14, Paul claims that Christians sanctify their unbelieving spouses. Now two verses later, he is claiming that they do not. Oh, but there's no vacillation there with Paul staggering back and forth teaching lies that war against one another, eh, Christian?
17 As God has distributed a wife, a departed wife, or no wife at all to every man, each man shall be as the Lord has called everyone when He called them into redemption -- with a wife, without a wife, or divorced. And these commandments are they with which I ordain all people in my churches to obey.
Oh, how brilliant. So the child who finds salvation is forbidden to ever marry, eh, Christyin?
18 If any man has been called into the Christian religion after he has been circumcised, thou shalt not let him become uncircumcised!
Well, P-L-E-A-S-E give us a history lesson, Christian. Tell us how your circumcised males have gone about seeking to have that superfluous skin reattached to their peeny in the first place? Are you still sighing in admiration, "Ooh, the great apostle Paul is SUCH a brilliant man!"?
And thou shalt not allow any uncircumcised male who has been drawn into Christianity be circumcised! 19After all, being circumcised is nothing, and being uncircumcised is nothing but the keeping of the commandments of God.
If it were true that circumcision is of no value, then why did Paul place so much emphasis on the topic? Could it be that Paul was obsessed with the male penis, so he was attempting to keep you Christyins mentally obsessed on the penis, and thus on human sexuality, too? Yes, indeed, you weenies!
And how do you Christians interpret the latter part of I Corinthians 7.19? Is Paul saying:
Keeping/obeying God's commandments is that which counts. OR
A male who is circumcised does so in order to obey God's commandments. OR
A male's refusing to be circumcised is an act that obeys God's commandments! So there! ?
20 Therefore, thou shalt let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called!
So the status of your weeny -- circumcised or uncircumcised -- is a calling, eh, Christyin?
21 If you have been called into Christianity while you were a servant, thou shalt not desire to be set free from your slavery. Instead, thou shalt use your slavery, 22because the slave that is called in the Lord is the Lord's freeman anyway.
So you Christyins actually believe that any black slave who found God had been set free from his slavery to those nasty white Christyin slavers in America, eh? Oh, but you do not live in La-la Land, right?
Likewise also, if you are a free man when you are called in the Lord, thou shalt be Christ's servant. 23After all, you are bought with a price. So if you don't like the idea of being a slave to Christ, blame Him not me. Heh-heh. Thou shalt not be the servants of men, however, even though I just got through commanding you slaves to not seek freedom from your slavery to man. Heh-heh.
24 Christian brothers, thou shalt make every man stick to whatever status or situation he was in when he was called into the brotherhood. Only then shall each Christian man be abiding with God.
Oh, so all those Americans who laid down their lives seeking to free black people from their status as slaves were "BAD, BAD, BAD!" eh, Christian? Oh, but you do not malign genuine heroes at all when you repeat and promote Paul's insane dogmanure, eh? AARGH!
